Harmony, TX (Limestone County)

Vivian Elizabeth Smyrl General Entry

Harmony is near the intersection of State Highway 7 and Farm Road 2749, seven miles east of Kosse in southern Limestone County. In the 1890s it was a thriving school community that employed two teachers to instruct 122 students. A school and several scattered residences marked the community on county highway maps of the 1940s. The Harmony school was abandoned by the mid-1950s, and students attended school in the Groesbeck district. A business and a cemetery appeared on maps of the area in the late 1980s.
